Arizona Diamondbacks Top 10 Prospects for 2008

Surprised not to see Ed Easley on there anywhere, but otherwise a pretty solid ranking.  As for Easley, he's a former Johnny Bench Award winner, and they have a good track record of panning out in the pros.

I got to see Brown a lot in college, and I was a big fan of his.  Also, I really like Scherzer.  Surprised to look at this system now and see that it's pretty average, when just two years ago it was probably one of the top two or three in baseball.
